i'm reading "the wheel of time" saga by robert jordan. i'm on book 3 "the dragon reborn" right now. it'a amazing. i started the saga when i was living in london, back in 2003, but stopped after book 11, right before coming back to italy. then robert jordan died in 2007 and i thought the story would have stopped; but brandon sanderson finished it and i'm now re-reading the all thing in italian. i had forgotten so many things from my first reading, so i'm thoroughly enjoying the experience, even if i know what's gonna happen here and there. highly recommended!
i'm focusing on some kind of stuff

I've just started this: http://www.amazon.com/Walden-Wheels-Ope ... 054402883X - have any of you read it?

Currently I'm listening to this on audio book

but just finished the Chrissie Wellington book - it was pretty good but by the end I was kind of bored. Lots of repetitive language and at times quite irritating!

This what I am on. Have read P&P and S&S before and loved them. I have wanted to read this since Sandra Bullock bangs on and on about it in 'The Lake House.'

A perfect book as Spring is about to bloom as well. I am lucky enough to snuggle up in my new Baroque bed from here while reading. All I need is Fitzwilliam! Get your daffs out girls!

7 Red Sundays - Ramón J. Sender. A novel about an anarchosindicalist strike / revolutionary attempt during the spanish pre-civil war years. Pretty amazing.

Starting strength - Mark Rippetoe. Downloaded this one. Hopefully it would be useful in the upcoming future.

" Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind Its a book written by Yuval Noah Harari "
